Description:

This is far to the left on Tahquitz, but definately worth going over there for. The 2nd pitch is a wonderful 150' hand crack. I don't know why this route has only 1 star on it. On pitch 3, start to face climb to the right before you get to the two questionable belay bolts. Then head up and right to find a 4" tall "stump". Belay here with large hexes and a large nut. Traverse right and pull the "5.3" move then run the rope out 195' to a fat pine tree. One more 5.1 pitch will take you to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Great!

awesome, awesome route. The move getting establised on pitch two was much, much harder than anything else on the route, maybe would call that the crux. That long crack is such a DREAM! Had to force myself to slow down and enjoy it, was just so stoked plugging all the fun bag of trick jams and movin!
